The Sous mon Baobab lion comforter from Moulin Roty would be lovely for either a girl or a boy. It features a teething ring, which is stitched into the ‘blanket’ body of the comforter, and a strap to keep baby’s pacifier close at hand (the strap is fastened with velcro).
Lion comforter is presented in a beautiful watercolour illustrated gift box designed by Elodie Coudray, and would make a delightful gift for a new baby or keepsake for your own child. The comforter is also available without a box – perfect if you would like a “backup” comforter.
The lion comforter’s blanket body is made from printed mustard cotton fabric on the front and super-soft terry-towelling fabric on the back (similar to the fabric on the end of the pacifier strap). The two bottom corners of the comforter blanket feature two pieces knotted cotton – perfect for little fingers to play with. The lion’s head is made from soft jersey with embroidered facial features and cotton whiskers. Stretch mustard cotton surrounds the lion’s head in a bright and cheerful lion’s mane.
(Please note that the Lion comforter is not a doll – only the head and arms are filled.)
Comforters are a perfect gift for a newborn or young child. They have been found to help an infant feel safe and secure during times of stress and change or times of separation, such as bedtime or daycare. Easy to grasp and hold, and providing a wide range of materials for little fingers to discover, the comforter will become a much-loved companion.
The ‘Sous mon Baobab’ (under my Baobab tree) range was introduced by Moulin Roty in late 2019 and centres around 3 main characters – Paprika, the lion, Bibiscus, the giraffe, and Bergamote, the elephant. Sitting under their Baobab tree in the savannah, the animal friends gather to watch the sunset, and under twinkling stars fall gently asleep.
The three characters adorn a delicate nursery collection that is illustrated with the watercolours of Elodie Coudray. Natural and mineral colours such as bluish grey, clay, and ochre are mixed and matched on a subtle cream base. The same shades can be found on the re-usable, decorative box which accompanies this comforter.
